CAMAS CHARDONNAY – ANNE DE JOYEUSE
The Camas range declines 12 different grape varieties. Each of these illustrates their specific characteristics from their terroir of origin: Limoux (Languedoc Roussillon). Since the commitment of Anne de Joyeuse to our Protect Planet program, the local environment has strongly gained in biological diversity. We can now identify more than eighty species of orchids in our vineyards. The best known of these is locally called the ‘Bee Orchid’.
A bright golden colour. Bright Golden Appearance with a very floral nose. On the palate the wine show flavors of grapefruit and pineapple.
VINEYARD: Reasoned viticulture, our methods of cultivation are based on the observation of the natural plant cycles of vines and the development of biodiversity. The vineyards, planted on clay and limestone soils, have been selected within three identified zones of climate and terroir surrounding Limoux: Upper valley of the Aude, Atlantic and Mediterranean.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Chardonnay.
VINIFICATION: Grapes are pressed directly on their arrival at the cellar, then vinified traditionally and fined at cold temperatures. They are then fermented under controlled temperatures.
TASTING NOTES: Serve between 10 and 12°C. Bright pale gold in colour with scents of white flowers on the nose, evolving on the palate towards notes of white fruit and a fresh, citrus finish.
MATCHING WITH FOOD: Fine and well balanced, it will accompany all sorts of fish dishes and will also be ideal as an aperitif.
